North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program
The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is now accepting applications for the 2019 program. This award-winning program creates an opportunity for potential leaders to broaden their understanding of regional issues and opportunities, while
developing and honing leadership skills. Since 2004, the program has graduated more than 350 individuals. These alumni are now challenging themselves while serving their employers and our community in a variety of community-building efforts.
The program begins in January and ends in May. It includes five all-day sessions and optional days where participants will be “out in the field” getting a close-up view of issues, how various agencies work, and the challenges facing our community.
The workshops will again be led by Shannon Beets, Vice President/Provost at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village. Each all-day workshop is integrated with time spent on regional issues such as affordable housing, transportation, planning for the future, and non-profit advocacy; and time on leadership skill development such as change management, team basics, creative decision making, public speaking, and networking. “The quality of leadership in any community is not to be taken for granted. New leaders must be trained, educated and informed,” said Lynn Saunders, President/CEO of the Truckee Chamber of Commerce.
Businesses can support the program and show their commitment to the community by enrolling an employee. Businesses can also help support the program with a one-day sponsorship. Information about the program, sponsorships, and applications can be found on www.TahoeTruckeeLeadership.com.
Tuition fee for the Leadership Program is $750 for businesses, $600 for special districts, and $500 for non-profit agencies. The fee covers all expenses of the program including meals and supplies. Partial scholarships are available. Deadline for applications is December 3, 2018.
